Turbine Releases Alpha Tester Impressions
The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with a page dedicated to sharing some impressions from the alpha stage testers. High marks seem to be all round...
So far, we're very pleased with how Alpha has been progressing. This week marked the largest number of concurrent players on the server since Alpha began, giving us a good starting point for analysis on how the game performs and plays. Despite heavier than expected logins, the servers remained stable and most players reported very few problems creating their character and beginning their adventure in Middle-earth. Even though there was a scarcity of wolves in the newbie hunting area (something that will be resolved in the next Alpha build), Archet was abuzz with excitement and activity.
We thought we'd take a moment to share some of the Alpha players' comments with you for some insight into what they think so far:
* Writing is excellent so far, as are the characterizations. The model options are fantastic - giving you a very *real* seeming and very individual character.
